Hi guys,
Any suggestions on how best to polish the plastic chrome on my 1985 VT500C? As you can see from the attached photo, there is quite a bit of corrosion on it.
Also, is it possible to re-chrome plastic parts like this?
Best regards,
Donal

There are two very good "chrome" spray paints. One is Spaz Stix Mirror Chromeand the other is VHT Plate Finish. Spaz Stix is maybe a little more reflective than the VHT but the VHT goes on smoother and would require less buffing. Neither is going to have the durability of chrome but you could always respray as needed. Be sure that the part youre spraying is very clean, sanded and well prepped. Be sure to post results.

Haven't used this stuff but it would be interesting to try for the price.
